    i have a 2 year old that will be turning 3 in august we are planing our first family vacation and i was thinking Disney but im not sure if his age is appropriate for this kind of parks and if it is what would be my best choice ?

    Hi Karina!

    We have been taking our children (now 9 months and 4 in August) since they were practically newborns.  My son loves visiting Walt Disney World soooo much and there are TONS of things for him to do.  

    The Magic Kingdom is his favorite park because it has the most attractions that he can enjoy and it's familiar to him.  Depending on your son's height, he can do pretty much anything (aside from the big thrill rides due to height).  Take a spin on Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin, or climb in a boat for a pirate adventure on Pirates of the Caribbean.  Take him to visit Mickey and all of his friends for a photo opportunity and get their autographs.  Aside from the rides, the shows are incredible at Walt Disney World.  The parades are fun and interactive and the fireworks at the end of the night are phenomenal.  

    Take a look around the attractions page.  You can filter on the left by height and you can see for yourself the wide range of attractions your son can do. 

    For a special treat, make a reservation for character dining for his birthday.  Our favorite is Chef Mickey's, which is a buffet style restaurant where Mickey and his pals visit you at your dining table for some character fun!  Advance reservations are suggested by calling (407) WDW-DINE or make them online

    Have a magical day!
